Test Suite & Setup

All of our tests were ran at the highest possibly game settings unless otherwise noted. The real world gaming tests are ran in 1024x768x32 and also in 1600x1200x32 resolutions. We run two tests on each resolution setting, one with Anti-Aliasing & Anisotropic Filtering on and another test with Anti-Aliasing & Anisotropic Filtering off. The table below describes the testing methods we use.

Resolution Settings
1024x768x32 No AA/AF
1600x1200x32 No AA/AF
1024x768x32 6x AA/8x AF
1600x1200x32 6x AA/8x AF

Below are the benchmarks that we are currently using:

  • Gun Metal
  • X2
  • Halo
  • Unreal Tournament 2003
  • AquaMark 3
  • Shadermark 2.0
